After a very entertaining Semi-Final and hard fought win for Jimmy Butler over Ricardo Jimenez of Puerto Rico, the Finals started with Jimmy playing Adeyinka Hammed TaeWoo. It looked like a normal match to begin with, but Jimmy had tweaked his back while playing Ricardo in the Semi Final match.
Seeing Jimmy in pain with every hard shot, after the first couple games he had to withdraw due to the back injury.
Of particular note to every player, please notice the Sportsmanship by both players as Jimmy had to withdraw.
You may have noticed the sign at the sign-in table on Tuesdays about using approved equipment and not using speed glue. AGTTA encourages all players to use approved equipment. We have a number of players who are not serving legally. If you are hiding the ball with your arm, not tossing the ball six inches, or lowering the ball below table level, you are not serving legally and you are getting an unfair advantage in games. Please make sure you are serving legally. Your fellow club members will greatly appreciate it.
